Taking cues from New Zealand wooden farm gates, this queen-sized bed features pallet wood with minimal processing but a unique and striking appearance. No piece used is longer than 1.2metres, and all are sanded to remove rough edges and any feathering splinters before assembly.
The Head and Tail boards are constructed by screwing pieces where possible from the rear together, then the nut, bolts, and washers used to give structural rigidity and visual attraction. Three runners connect the head and tail boards; the central piece is three layers screwed together, and the outer two are made from two and a half layers screwed together. These runners are connected by quick-release connections allowing for easy moving if required.
Mattress support slats complete the framing and sit inside the runners evenly spaced; no need for fixing into place. The finish is a thinned layer of matt acrylic polyurethane to create some color and semi sealing, then a couple of layers of natural beeswax polish applied with a shoe polishing brush
